Color: Pale straw. A typical youngster that spent only three years on first-fill bourbon barrels.

Nose: The first nosing is quite tangy. Ginger and chili pepper are slapping you in the face. Vanilla ice cream with grated coconut and fresh figs or dates. Water makes it sweeter. Butterscotch candy is balanced by lemon zest.

Taste: Cereals with vanilla, coconut and banana. Also some rum raisin ice cream. The spiciness of chili pepper returns with a (not so good) hint of wet cardboard.

Finish: A dry finish with vanilla and ginger.

Conclusion: Young and 100% Belgian. It could be an ideal summer appetizer drink. Too bad of the wet cardboard aroma.

My original tasting notes (in Dutch) can be found on my tumblr blog A Tasty Dram: tastydram.tumblr.com/post/51663569720/…

Simply too young, I was slightly dissapointed by this one, but I would love to try some more mature versions in a couple of years
